NECROPHENIA by Robert Rankin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 15, 2008

"The publisher describes Rankin as a 'beloved British Eccentric.' Wrong. He's a total wack job. But if you can understand him, you'll find, oddly enough, that the more you think about it, the funnier it gets."
Once again, Mankind faces doom in another indescribable Elvis-filled gumshoe fantasy grab-bag, Rankin's 30th outing (The Da-Da-De-Da-Da Code, 2008, etc.). Read full book review >
THE DA-DA-DE-DA-DA CODE by Robert Rankin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 1, 2008

"Downright obnoxious once or twice, amusing about as often, but nearly always clever and witty: Well worth a try, though Rankin's in no danger of knocking fantasy-comedy maestro Terry Pratchett off his perch anytime soon."
Transcendent parody from Rankin (The Toyminator, 2006, etc.). Read full book review >
THE TOYMINATOR by Robert Rankin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 15, 2006

"Inspired lunacy that will be relished by anyone with a taste for humor in the bawdy, irreverent, smart-alecky, wisecracking British style."
A gleefully mad collision between self-referential movie script and gumshoe noir/alien-abduction parody that mostly defies synopsis. Read full book review >
THE BRIGHTONOMICON by Robert Rankin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 1, 2005

"A decent introduction to an author who never saw a pun he didn't like, and a definite improvement over The Witches of Chiswick (2004)."
Rankin, a bestseller in England, returns to lunacy with the eighth in his ever-growing Brentford "trilogy." Read full book review >
THE WITCHES OF CHISWICK by Robert Rankin
FICTION & LITERATURE
